Quinn better, but Browns trail 10-6

Brady Quinn played better in the first half against the Broncos than in the game against the Vikings last week, but he didn't produce a touchdown when special teams gave him the ball at the Denver 22. Phil Dawson ended up kicking a field goal when the drive stalled on the Denver 4.

Quinn seems to hold the ball forever and then usually dumps the ball off. He did connect better with Braylon Edwards in the first half, and that is an encouraging sign.

The defense played well enough for the Browns to be in the lead at halftime. The ony touchdown the Broncos scored was on a nine-yard drive that started when rookie Alex Mack bounced a shotgun snap that hit Quinn in the ankle, resulting in a fumble recovered by the Broncos.

This is a winnable game. Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton isn't very good. Many of his throws are nowhere near a receiver. Fans booed him at the end of the first half.
